The Big Lunch

The UK’s annual thanksgiving weekend for neighbours and communities

The Big Lunch will go ahead on 6&7 June!*

*(but it will be a little different)!

The Big Lunch is the UK’s thanksgiving weekend for neighbours and communities - a time where people come together to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better. Now more than ever, we need to make time for each other, so let’s get the nation talking over a cuppa and a bite to eat and have some fun with The Big Virtual Lunch.

For those of you who have been to a Big Lunch before, things will need to be a little bit different this year, but community spirit is shining bright, and whether you are a first timer or an old hat, there are lots of ways you can join in. 

If you have any questions, please send us an email or call us on 0800 022 3357, and make sure you’re signed up for our monthly newsletter so you can keep up to date with developments. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and you can now join our facebook group to swap ideas, find out what other people are doing and share experiences!
